Lumière as a public benefit organization (ANBI)

Lumière cinema was designated a public benefit organization (ANBI) with a cultural mission by the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration. For more information about ANBI, visit the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration website (in Dutch).

 This status gives private individuals the opportunity to make one-time or periodical tax-deductible donations. Companies can also support Lumière with favourable tax conditions: your donation is deductible from your company's corporation tax. Please note: the tax rules for donations to cultural institutions were expanded in 2012. Lumière is part of a select group to which these regulations apply. If you would like more information about donating to Lumière, please contact our corporate director Nico Haenen:

 Because of our ANBI status, we are required to publish certain business information. These documents can be found at

To ensure the best possible cinema experience, we have drawn up the following rules:

  • No tickets will be sold for films after they have started (start times can be found on the website).
  • The auditorium will open ten to fifteen minutes before the film starts. This gives you plenty of time to find a seat.
  • Food is not permitted in the auditoriums so as not to disturb or inconvenience other guests.
  • Please do not use your mobile phone during the film.

Lumière adheres to the national agreements pertaining to the audience suitability rating (film classifications/age certificates). According to the law, children younger than 16 will not be granted access to a film with a minimum age of 16 (even if they are accompanied by an adult). Identification may be requested. Children will only be granted access to films with other age limits if they are accompanied by an adult.
